This is a thin magazine-sized book with some orientative content, but serves mostly to provide activities for those who might be displaced from their favorite Minecraft hardware platform.

The first 25 pages describe the basic objects and mobs found in the game. Seventeen pages are devoted toward building projects:
1. Cozy Cottage
2. Waterslide
3. Mob Spawner Trap
4. Sliding Piston Door

While I haven't tried the third project, it looks to be the most valuable part of the book to me, since mob traps are highly desirable. The fourth project is similar (if not identical) to one presented by the Redstone Handbook.

The rest of the book expects input from the reader, and a few pages might be sacrificed if you want to explore papercrafting and use the two hangers. There are eight puzzles and games, with answers to the puzzles in the back.

Overall, this book is not what I expected by the title. I figured it would be a yearbook of Mojang's Minecraft development process (although the first four pages do highlight the prominent staff members). But, it is still a good source of info for beginner's and the very young Minecrafters out there suffering from withdrawal symptoms.

I liked this book because it had all of the minecraft essentials. I could've been more up to date with the biomes, some are missing from the new update. I would recommend this to any person who likes minecraft. :)

Thought it was going to be bigger. It covers a lot, but thought it was going to have a little more to it.

My son is a huge Minecraft fan and he has a set of four books and said he needed this one to complete it. I'm not exactly sure why it's more expensive than the rest but then when I got it I saw it is a much larger book, almost like a yearbook.

I don't know a whole lot about Minecraft but I do know a lot about my seven year old. He doesn't love to read and usually does it only when forced. He sat down and read this book cover to cover. That pretty much tells me all I need to know.
